Kizuna Jizōs [Bonding Jizōs](2012– )

A series of statues of Jizō by Yabuuchi Satoshi have been housed around the country. Of these three are housed in places with a connection to Rikuzentakata in the Tohoku, Shinetsu, and Kyushu areas, where they serve to console the spirits of the dead and stand as a prayer for recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake.
